Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World
BY KSENIA ZIZINA
@ VOL 11
ON JUN 16, 2016
"In a very fast paced world, I think film is a very good tool to learn how to stop for a moment and acknowledge it."
In Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World from PechaKucha Night London Vol. 11, Ksenia Zizina shares how shooting film makes her better at seeing and appreciating the world. Zizina is a designer with a passion for all things creative - architecture, photography, art, design, travel - you name it! She works in architectural practice and uses the rest of her time to make photographs. Photography has become second nature for Zizina. It is an essential part of her 'storytelling' which involves preparing the film stock, shooting, developing negatives, scanning and archiving. She considers all parts as one creative approach to photography.
Ksenia not only shares some of her beautiful images but also conveys her passion for all the small and interesting aspects of the world and how taking photos helps her appreciate these things. By the end, you will want to pull out your camera and take some snaps of your community, your environment, and your world!

From Siberia to Texas: Uncovering My Family’s Immigration Story One Recipe at a Time
BY MARY KALTENBERG
@ VOL 33
ON MAY 22, 2017
Mary Kaltenberg best introduces her story herself:
"It started during a blizzard storm the first week I arrived back in the United States early 2016. As an activity for my mom and I during this cold snowy day, we gathered recipes and started compiling them into a cohesive cookbook. I asked questions about the origination of the recipe and through each recipe lived a different story. Translating and transcribing developed into a documentation of our family history, rich of funny, suspenseful and adventurous stories. One recipe at a time I uncovered the story of my Jewish, Russian, Polish family - how they became a family, survived in Siberia, were deported and stripped of citizenship and the humor of eventually adapting to American culture."
